How can you be sure you are choosing the right gloves for the job? Currently, glove performance is measured with millimeter thickness. However, this measurement is not the most accurate due to variations in thickness across a single glove. Disposable gloves are thickest in the fingertips and thinner in the palms due to how they are dipped in the manufacturing process.

  工作时,你如何保证(自己)选择了正确的手套? 目前,都是以厚度来衡量手套性能的,(精确到)毫米。然而,这种测量(方法)不是最准确的,因为单只手套的厚度是有(轻微的)变化的。一次性手套在生产浸渍过程中,会导致指尖部位(稍微)显厚一点、手掌(稍微)显薄一点。

  Thickness measurements in millimeters have the potential to vary based on which part of the glove is measured, which is frequently the palm. The glove industry is transitioning to measuring gloves by weight in grams rather than in millimeters. Gram weight circumvents the variations in thickness across a single glove. With this shift, the terminology will change as well. Rather than labeling gloves as thin, manufacturers will refer to them by their weight or use - such as lightweight or heavy duty.


  When did the glove industry start the shift?


  Around 2006, lighter weight gloves were introduced for the first time, but they were not well received because the original formulation of the gloves did not provide sufficient barrier protection. In 2009, lightweight gloves with a new formulation were reintroduced, offering more options for clients. Because of changes in technology, lightweight gloves have become more popular, with even 2 mil gloves being acceptable for some uses.



  Glove thickness measurements are shifting from millimeters to overall weight in grams.


  Difference between millimeters and grams


  Gloves need to provide barrier protection for the hand. The move to gram measurements would help standardize quality in the glove industry, although gram weight has not been transitioned to the end user yet. It will also provide clearer guidance for glove purchasing decisions because certain weight may be better suited for specific purposes than others. The current standard is 3 mil and premium gloves are 5 mil or higher, but they will need to be measured at the wrist, fingertips and palm. With an allowable 0.3 gram variation in either direction, weight provides a more accurate measurement of gloves. Gram weight also is a more accurate reflection of the amount of material used in a glove and requires only a simple digital scale rather than the use of specific tools, such as a micrometer.



  Grams will be the new standard for glove measurements.
